About the real time report


Our system gets event every second. When somebody opens the email, clicks the link, downloads the images from our server, our system would getting event. The events may trigger to update our user data, such as how many recipients opened the email in the campaign.

It is a heavy task to update these information into our database in real time.

The report would be updated periodically, so it would eventually reflect the final information.

Quality HTML Message

What makes a quality HMTL message?

Decent HTML message brings you a successful promotion campaign. Eye-catching images, slogan and readable content are tasks for marketing team and designers. The final and essential step of preparing an e-news is to write the HTML source well and let the message spread around the internet properly. A quality HTML message should be:

1) Following standard. The validation of HTML code is important for consistent interpretation. Invalid syntax like style="color:red which have the closing " missing, and td without closing tag /td pairing up would have a chance of display problem. Sometimes browsers handle them and give a perfect output but it is not guaranteed. The message might be processed wrongly and lead to disorder.

2) Well structured. Using tables and organizing content into rows, columns, span or div ensure that the images and content have nice positioning. Grid-like structure makes content look tidy and easy to manage positioning.

Track Your Campaign

How to track your campaign?

Open rate is an important figure to show the performance of your campaign. Our system tracks the action by an invisible image. When recipients open the email with the image, the action is tracked . Unfortunately, the blank image might not be opened spontaneously due to security setting. Recipient would need to allow images to be displayed in order to have the open rate recorded.


Click rate of a campaign refers to the clicking of a link included in the email. Every click of recipient is recorded and that shows you how much attention the link gained from the target. The report could be found under Campaign.


Would there be NO open rate but click rate more than zero?
Yes, this case occurs when a recipient doesn't allow images displayed in email, therefore, the open is not recorded. The clicking of link would still be tracked and this leads to a zero open rate but valid click rate.

List Segmentation

In our recent system upgrade, we have added a new feature - Filter. You can use it to send a segment of the selected list(s). So, how it works?

1) Go to "Contact", "Filter", then press the "Create Filter" button.


2) Name your filter and input some description (if necessary)

3) Choose the filter criteria you would like to select, for example, all male recipient in Korea.

4) It's worthwhile to talk about the relation (AND and OR) in between the two criteria. As the name stated, if you choose AND, it means that you select all male recipient, and they must be in Korea. For the OR, it means that you select all male recipient (in any country) or Korea (in any gender), recipients matched either criteria will be selected.

Press Create Filter button. That's completed the filter creation. But how it is related to your campaign?
When you create a new campaign, you can choose a filter now.
First, select the contact list(s), then choose the filter. It will show you how many recipient were selected for this campaign and your campaign will be more personalized and relevant to your email content now.

At this moment, we provide two criteria to create the filter, and we are working hard to put more criteria to create a more powerful filter.

What is "User Provisioning (Read only)" right?
"User Provisioning (Read only)" is the right to retrieve all your user's basic information in your Google Apps domain.
